Just kidding

September 2, 2007

A friend of mine recently vowed to post in her blog once a day, no matter how short the post. I thought ‘hey, that’s a great idea’ and decided to copy her, at least for the month of September. I often have stuff to say, or stories to tell, but then I think of all the stuff I haven’t yet blogged, and get unmotivated. So I figured that making myself post once a day, no matter how mundane, might get me over that. And then yesterday came and went without me posting a thing. Sigh. So, I’ve decided to modify her goal. Set the bar really low. For the next four weeks, I will post at least once a week.

I’ve been on a roll finishing things lately. Two pairs of socks!
Hedera

At the beginning of the year, I decided to try and knit a sock a month – 6 pairs for the year. Then halfway through Hedera, I decided that I didn’t really like the yarn, the needles were too flimsy, and, especially around the heel, it didn’t make a good commuting sock. So I kinda stalled on the sock knitting. I now have a long-term temp assignment, and with the job comes some semblance of routine. I knit on the way to and from work (I can even knit standing on the metro, as long as I can lean against the wall or one of those doorway barriers.) So, these two pairs of socks catch me up through June. The second pair is from a pattern called Bellatrix, in Lorna’s Laces in black purl. I’m working on flame-wave socks now, and its a pretty quick knit, so hopefully I’ll be done with those and back on track by mid-September.

I also finished Tomato. Here’s a picture of it unblocked – I’m hoping blocking will bring some improvement.

Isabella is almost done – I messed up a seam and lost my desire to work on it for a while. Now that it’s almost too cool to wear it, maybe I’ll go ahead and finish it. Odessa is done too, but I don’t have any blog-worthy pics. I’m doing some charity knitting – scarves and hats – before I move on to the next project. Mystery stole languishes in the corner.

    Hey beautiful daughter! The only thing amiss with the sweater is that it is slightly too large for you. It would fit me perfectly!!! Hee!
